JACK brings Mut zur Wut to London
JACK was proud to partner with international poster competition, Mut zur Wut, (translated as Courage to Rage) to bring a selection of this year’s winning posters to the streets of London for the very first time.
Founded in 2010 by graphic designer Götz Gramlich and billposter Marcello Lucas, Mut zur Wut aims to raise awareness for global and social issues and circumstances while loosening geographical and ideological boundaries. In 2013 more than 900 designers from over 60 countries submitted posters, the rapid growth of the competition means it is now operated as a not for profit association.
Mut zur Wut’s mission is much more than just a competition; “If we succeed in slowing down the hectic pulse of a city and trigger awareness for global problems in our society, even if just for a few seconds, we have done what we believe is our social responsibility,” Maggie Necoy, Public Relations and Fundraising, Mut zur Wut.
The competition has showcased posters across Germany, as well as in a vineyard in the metropolitan region of Rhein-Neckar, but this is the first time that the posters will have been seen on UK soil.
